* Also averted in the case of emergency services - if you call them, they have to come, and they won't be amused if there's no actual emergency. This is also why if you live on campus at university, you will get such a hardcore lecture about not pulling the fire alarm as a prank. Fire fighters will actually leave other fires to come put out a potential blaze at a high-density residence like a dormitory in order to save the most lives.

* ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'': In the first episode, the three soon-to-be-Rangers hear the Mooks of the year coming for them. Kira suggests (without much hope) that it's the wind, and Ethan proves his GenreSavvy by disagreeing.

** This is actually Lampshaded by the enemies: if the player makes a loud enough noise without being seen, there's a randomly-occuring exchange where one guard says "It's probably--" but is then abruptly cut off by his partner, who tells him that it's [[GenreSavvy never "just nothing"]].

* The father in ''Der Erlkönig'' repeatedly explains away his son's insistence that the wicked Erl-King is nearby. He blames the valley mist, the the slight breeze, and finally the tree trunks before [[NotNowKiddo the Erl-King suddenly kills the son]].

** After the characters watch ''Franchise/StarWars'' 4-6 in ''{{Spaced}}'', Tim declares that entire plot wouldn't have happened if the Imperial gunner in ''A New Hope'' hadn't dismissed the escape pod carrying [=R2D2=] and [=C3PO=] down to Tatooine as nothing to worry about.

** Also, alarms in general. If you've ever lived near a building alarm that has a habit of going off in bad weather and never deactivating again, you are unlikely to even consider that it might be something you should investigate (and will probably be fervently hoping that the building in question actually ''is'' being burgled due to their antisocial - and probably illegal - false alarms.)

* In a ShoutOut to this trope, the very nastiest event in ''EuropaUniversalis 2'' ("The White Lotus Rebellion") has two options, one of which "It's likely just harmless talk." (Cue 30% revolt-risk.) The OTHER option gives you half that revolt-risk, but costs you an arm and a leg.

* Lampshaded and subverted in ''GearsOfWar'', where Dom does not brush off the strange sound so easily. He's right.

* JamesEllroy typically does quite a convincing job of this, as we really can't blame the cops a lot of times for ignoring details that genuinely seem inconsequential. It's their bad luck that they're being written by a guy who loves coming up with insanely complicated stories where every little detail matters.
